Plant growth regulators and somatic embryogenesis in Medicago sativa L.
Languages of publication
Somatic embryogenesis, resembling zygotic embryogenesis in vivo, is considered to be an efficient method of in vitro propagation of a number of agronomically important plant species including Medicago sativa L. and it offers an in vitro experimental system for studying the embryo development. Artificial seed technology is one of the important applications of the process. Induction of embryogenesis, embryo development and induction desiccation tolerance are affected by plant growth regulators. The review will focus on the effect of plant growth regulators: auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, abscisic acid, jasmonates, ethylene and inhibitors on the synthesis and action of different phases of somatic embryogenesis in Medicago sativa L.
